In Memory of Tyler Lucas

Tyler LucasWe were greatly saddened that one of our students, Tyler Lucas, died in a tragic car accident on Tuesday February 1st. Tyler was a senior at Chrysalis and was scheduled to graduate in June. He was genuinely interested in people and enjoyed sharing life stories.

Tyler had many friends and close relationships with adults in his life. His teachers at Chrysalis knew him as someone who cared deeply about his family and who worked diligently on his schoolwork to be better prepared for college.  Tyler was his own person. He was a self-confident leader among his peers. He valued thinking out-of- the-box.  One of his “trademarks” as he called them, was to wear bright, flashy colors.

He came to Chrysalis in the spring of his junior year to concentrate on college preparatory courses. The Dominican University in Northern California was his college of choice and he was planning on attending there with a scholarship offer.  Tyler was an avid Lacrosse player and played for Issaquah High School.  He was looking forward to playing Lacrosse in college.

Tyler is in our thoughts everyday as our school community grieves for the loss of this wonderful young man. We send our prayers to his family.

The family would like people to make donations to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation ( in lieu of flowers.
